Amazon has an AI vision and Rajeev Rastogi is shaping it

“Rastogi is the director of machine learning at Amazon India and has been ranked among one of the top 10 data scientists in India. The e-commerce giant is looking at putting artificial intelligence and ML at the heart of everything it does. According to Rastogi, the problems that AI and ML need to spar within India are very different from the Amazon universe in the rest of the world, especially because the data available is not of high quality.

Rastogi had been dabbling with data even earlier – he holds a PhD in computer science from the University of Austin at Texas and more than 50 patents – and Bell Labs India was the springboard into a career of solving problems using data. Yahoo! Labs came after the Bell Labs gig before Amazon convinced to switch over.”
